. >> thank you and i will give you a quick introduction of myself. my name is felix lopez, an education coordinator and resources services for families and i have never really accessed too many services because i thought i could do everything on my own and i'm married and i have children with speech delays and we have a bunch of questions and sound support for families and about there for about a year 1/2. i will let them introduce themselves. >> feel -- felix is a the model for our place. they have tried to navigate those systems to provide the same amount of empathy. my daughter did have stuttering but with therapy it resolved itself. the mission of support with families is we work to ensure that families and children with any kind of disability or special health care need have the knowledge and assistance they need to make informed choices that support their child's health, education and development. and our inform line where you can send requests to 40 for families.org per we're going to talk about our for the purpose line service. >> our phone line service is the want 209-2050 fo
is due to a lot of activists and community members who made this a priority issue to educate government and members of the community on this issue and of course they have been impacted on this as well and hopefully through the hearings we can push and encourage for better working -- a better coordination amongst a variety of departments and this sits in a lot of different purviews so again i want to invite you up and chaired the task force and a member of the sf mta. thank you for being here. >> thank you supervisors. i am deputy of planning for the sf mta also the transportation task force, co-chair with dhp. i'm going to give you a quick overview of the strategy and then what we're going to be talking about in the hearing so you can hear from the various departments on what they have have done since we have been developing this report. it's really important to note that we have been working over the last two years as a team and moving concert with the changes and the strategy is reflecting in real time what we're doing and moving forward and there is obviously a lot of challenges
, but once again up close there is another level of information that's educational about this facility. >> fire fly by artist ned con is an art installation which rises straight from the golden gate avenue sidewalk to the top of the building. >> the fire fly wall will be 5 by 5 polley carbon plates that will move with the wind and show a wave effect in the daytime. when those also swing back and forth and they hit the fulcrum, it will also set up an led light that will cover the fire fly. so, at nighttime people in another part of san francisco can see the side of our building and about 20 feet wide and 10 stories high will be a wall that will flickr on and off like fire flies at nighttime. it will be so energy efficient that if all those lights go on, it will be the equivalent of a 40 watt bulb. and also the new piece of artwork going all the way down the side of the building, which looks like this incredible wind ripples on a pond. and i thought, oh, my god, how incredible, how wonderful. >> inside the building we will have water walls in the main staircase, and the water will be dri
enforcement at certain corridors, develop the education and awareness program, and really looking at developing and funding the core program and developing something which is looking at pilots, a lot more pilots to see the efficacy of the treatments and we haven't applied these in san francisco yet so we want to test them out for efficacy and as they prove themselves we can make them as part of the capital program and do more likely so you will hear about that. also we're not going to sop stop with this support. we will have a task force development criteria for the next steps and then every year provide an annual evaluation report on what did we do? how well did it achieve the goals and how close are we to the achievements? and then develop the five year prioritization of projects so we keep feeding them into the city's capital plan so that is a high level overview. i will now have the departments come individually and let you know specifically what is happening and how we can move forward. next up is dr. batia from the department of public health. >> i have a question. so wh
. perhaps some of it is an awareness or an education about resource he he that are available. there's a whole gamut of people available to remove graffiti, people who have never done it before, maybe they're painters but they just have access to materials and they are used to taking paint off. i guess farther down the spectrum of people that have never done it before and just want to be good citizens to remove graffiti. then you go up through -- you know, people who just specialize in graffiti removal. there's people who, you know, more like me who get technically involved and we test everything. you've got vendors out there that are selling you products, including antigraffiti coatings. so, i think there's a level of what the significance of the historic building, if we're talking about the white house or the national monument, you know, we'll always get -- usually find people who are super well qualified. and then if it's -- you know, if it were my house and it was built in the 1920s, i might get more ghosting. it's just a matter of -- not me. i would do a good job. [laughter] >>
the world. and san francisco there is a need to have an education campaign to identify heritage buildings following the model of the city of edmonton where it is done in coordination with the heritage society. do you have suggestions to accomplish this in san francisco? i guess this is the san francisco folks. >> yeah, i think there is already. i'm the expert on the materials, but i think there is a system through your 311 calls here in san francisco, is that for example, if it's on art, it goes to the arts commission and they have a different way of addressing graffiti abatement. and i believe with historic buildings and structures it should be the same. i don't know if it is or not. but that's a really good point because sometimes the approach for addressing a paintment on a historic or cultural monument or building is going to be a little bit different than approaching it on a replacable cement or brick wall. so, making the coordinations is going to be very important. the point i think that you are addressing in your question about the shadowing is i think the effort that's behind that
, go into physics or not and you know what my counselor told me in high school, he said the education's not going to kill you and it didn't. >> this is true, and you're putting it to use with the forecast. >> talking about a the fact that it's going to get warm in the bay area. mostly sunny skies, haze out there, temperatures are 7 degrees cooler at this hour than they were yelled morning in parts of the bay area. we expect a pretty rapid warm up. 49 degrees at concord, oakland at 50. san jose 49 degrees and out the door, looking at mostly sunny skies today. 90 minutes, a number near 60 degrees right around the bay, and the satellite and radar showing us that we have all of the high clouds moving up in the pacific northwest and the queen charlotte up there in british columbia. for us, we're looking at clear skies and there's not a drop of rain in site, so i don't know what that means for may flowers. we will today warm to the mid- 80s inland, not a bad beach day with temperatures along the shoreline in some places in the 70s. 72 at half-moon bay. 84 degrees at redwood city. 85 a degre
